Summary
Everett Soop, a Blackfoot, lives on the Blood Indian Reserve in southern Alberta. Muscular dystrophy has confined him to a wheelchair for several years, but it has not subdued his spirit. He is an outspoken journalist and political cartoonist -- a crusader for Native rights, a man of acerbic wit, educated himself in anthropology, arts and philosophy. In Soop on Wheels, the filmmaker captures the essence of a man with impressive intellectual and spiritual resources, who has had to face the challenges of being both indigenous and disabled. These problems have been compounded by the loneliness of being set apart from his own people, who fear his illness and are wary of his controversial stands. Everett s survival tools have been his sense of humor, his artistic gifts, and the spiritual values taught to him by his grandparents. He is proud of his own culture and speaks Blackfoot fluently. He is the only Native artist represented in the permanent collection of the Museum of Caricatures of the Canadian National Archives. Here is a portrait of an extraordinary man who defies the stereotypical image of his culture. Smaller non-profit organization may apply for discounts
